Often it is difficult to see how our faith intersects or connects with the busy, hectic lives we lead in the “real” world. This experience will help people of all ages laugh, reflect, and re-commit to a real, active, Catholic faith that fits our everyday lives.
• Night One: Broken
Real life has moments of sorrow and pain—physically, emotionally, relationally, and spiritually. We’ll discuss brokenness as we experience it. It is important for us to know, name and share our brokenness with Jesus, who accompanies us and wants to know our brokenness and joins our brokenness to his.
• Night Two: Blessed
In our brokenness, Jesus shows up, often in unrecognizable form. He comes to walk alongside, to enlighten, and to feed those who follow him. He invites us to receive blessing by being in communion with him.
• Night Three: Shared and Sent
Jesus invites those who commune with him to share the Good News and sends us out to families, schools, work and the larger world to be witnesses of what we have seen, felt and received. We who are blessed and broken are called to share the blessing we have received in Christ.

Well…for Mike it’s all about planting seeds and nurturing faith in a God who loves us and calls us by name. Mike uses energy, humor, and stories to affirm the goodness of God’s presence among us while inviting others, and himself, to take the next step in their faith journey.
